Non-stinging,excellent absorption. This product was recommended by my dermatologist since I've never been able to find a sunblock that would be non-irritating. She was correct on all accounts. Only negative is with the pump bottle. You can't tell how much is left after using so not sure when to repurchase.
Posted 2/3/2016 by babs
I kept hearing about this but for some reason I tried everything but this! This is a great great sunscreen for acne prone skin!
Turned sunscreen!n hater into regular user!
Posted 1/30/2016 by Elizabeth
I fully believe in the need for SPF protection, but I've never been good about using it because my skin is quick to break out. Also, many products make my already oily skin unbearable!
Not so with this product. I read a review in WSJ and decided to give it a try. Now I use everyday. No breakouts, no heaviness. Highly recommended.
Posted 1/12/2016 by Jacqueline
This is the best facial sunscreen that I've ever used. It goes on totally clear and works well under my foundation. I love the SPF 46 as well.
Love this product
Posted 1/6/2016 by Sj
My dermatologist suggested this product 2 years ago. Have used everyday since. Love the tinted version too, for just a hint of color and great sun protection.
Posted 12/29/2015 by Lisa
Goes on easily. Not too greasy for my teenage son who has acne. I also use it on face too.
Posted 12/25/2015 by Jessica
I love the creamy, lightweight feel, a nice feat for an SPF 46 sunscreen with zinc oxide. Any cast that it leaves, and it's minimal, would disappear under even a sheer foundation. And it has Niacinadmide, HA and Vit E. If it had more anitoxidants, I'd switch from my go-to sunscreen. Still, for it's SPF protection, aesthetic properties and price, it's a winner.
Posted 12/8/2015 by Chie
I love that this is not greasy and so light when applied. This is the only sunscreen I will use cause I have an acne prone skin and this really help.
Posted 11/24/2015 by Magicbmd
Light weight. Great protection. A little moisturizing .
Posted 11/23/2015 by Geoff
My wife uses this and got me to try it. I'm glad she did- it's great protection, goes on smoothly, is not greasy and disappears into my skin.
Posted 11/23/2015 by Brooke
I want to use physical sunscreen but almost all leave my face white and chalky looking. This is the ONLY one that really disappears. I love it!! I've got my entire family using it!
Will wear this every day
Posted 10/12/2015 by Hilary
Light and non-greasy, and doesn't turn my face white - finally, a sunscreen I will wear every day!
Posted 10/6/2015 by Tammy
I love that this is clear and so light but also a high SPF. I put this on before I put on my makeup and it is great! Not oily and very light.
Posted 10/4/2015 by Jan
Good protection as a sun screen. Not greasy. Makeup goes on easy after applying it. Was a little bit drying to my skin when used in conjunction with a nightly retinol, but overall, works well.
Love, love, love
Posted 10/2/2015 by me
It's truly clear & light. Since my sensitive face needs major sunscreen protection, especially during summer months, I apply 2 coats of sunscreen, with Elta UV Clear as my base coat and other "thicker" sunscreen as a top coat. Both layers are SPF 45+ or higher. I've no problem with breakout despite the 2 coats.
Posted 10/1/2015 by light sunscreen
It's light and it goes very nice under any type of foundation.
Great sunblock for sensitive skin
Posted 9/28/2015 by Sherry
I have extremely sensitive skin and burn easily. I react to so many products, but this sunblock does not cause any irritation or breakouts. I've used it for years, and will continue to use it to prevent aging and sun damage.
Posted 9/9/2015 by Barb
I am really loving this product. It is great to wear alone or under makeup. Great for sensitive skin.
Posted 9/4/2015 by Mengli
I love Elta and will but it again.
Best moisturizing facial sunblock
Posted 8/31/2015 by Danny
Great moisturizing facial lotion with SPF. It has a light non greasy texture. I especially love the convenient pump dispenser which does not allow for any product to be wasted. I highly recommend this moisturizing lotion to be added into your daily skin routine.
Posted 8/30/2015 by Jacquie
This formula is wonderful. I have sensitive skin and it has never given me issue. The consistency is perfect. Easy to use and works as described. I won't buy any other brand now!
Posted 8/30/2015 by Lorie
I love Elta and the way it is absorbed without leaving an oily feeling and that is also recommended by my Dermatologist.
Best sunscreen I've ever used
Posted 8/29/2015 by cass
I've tried a lot of sunscreens, mainly sticking to the ones rated low in toxicity on EWG, and this is not only the best one from that list but the best one period. It lasts a really long time. I have 6 girlfriends using it now too and they all love it. It's amazing. Protects well. Sits under makeup well. Goes on smooth and absorbs. Doesn't leave your skin white. Doesn't get greasy or cause acne.
Love this for my sensitive skin!
Posted 8/28/2015 by HeatherFeatherFL
I've been going through a rough time with my skin over the past couple months due to allergic reactions (painting inside the house, etc). This sunscreen has been incredibly calming to my skin. It doesn't have a fragrance. It goes on smoothly and disappears into skin. After it's absorbed, I can't even tell I have anything on. It's great under makeup. Highly recommend.
Posted 8/25/2015 by Holly
Wonderful light product.
Posted 8/19/2015 by Yafang
it will not leave the white marks on your face, perfect to use under makeup. This one is also so light, best for oily skin.
Best Sunscreen for Oily, Acne-prone skin types
Posted 8/18/2015 by V
I actually found this product in a dermatologist's office. Being a skincare professional, I'm always looking for products that protect, adhere and are non-comedogenic. This one is a winner! I love the UVA/UVB protection it offers, as I am fair-skinned with pink undertones and occasionally sensitive. The formula is so light, it adhere's quickly with no residue, and it evens out my skin tone. What more could you ask for? I even use it on my daughter who has mild acne-prone skin. It helps her maintain a healthy, clear complexion in addition to the added SPF benefit. You can't go wrong with it.
The only setback is that it is costly for the 1.7 oz. size. I use it daily and it goes quickly. I just wish it came in a bigger size and cost less.
Posted 8/14/2015 by Chie
this is the best sunscreen I've ever tried so far. Since I started using this I never experience any breakout anymore. It is so light and it doesn't clog my pores.
My husband's favorite sunscreen
Posted 8/12/2015 by Yehudi
This is the only sunscreen formula my husband will use on his face. It's very light, not greasy or sticky, and leaves his skin with a healthy glow.
Light and natural
Posted 8/6/2015 by Hilary
I recently finished my first bottle of Elta MD sunscreen (Elta MD UV Physical Broad-Spectrum SPF 41) and decided to give this version a try as well. It sinks in beautifully and is completely unscented, which is fantastic for my sensitive skin and nose!
New Elta Fan
Posted 7/31/2015 by EC
I finally made the switch from my other daily sunscreen products. I live in Florida and I cannot leave my house without a daily sunscreen. This sunscreen is extremely light and does not make my face breakout. My new favorite product, and I highly recommend this Elta sunscreen to anyone with problem skin!
Posted 7/28/2015 by Min
The sunscreen is not greasy and very effective. I love using it every day and for kids and family. Everybody loves it.
Soft and Smooth
Posted 7/22/2015 by Barbara
My daughter-in-law, who is an aesthetician, recommended this sunscreen to me. She has beautiful skin and uses this brand on her young daughters, as well. They live in the mountains and are exposed to a lot of UV rays. I agree that it goes on smoothly and feels great. And, it does the job.
Believe the hype!
Posted 7/21/2015 by rebecca
I kept hearing how great this stuff was and finally decided to switch from my Obagi sunscreen. This stuff is as light as a feather and goes on so nicely over my other products. Not giving my acne prone skin any issues either. I'm hooked!
Posted 7/20/2015 by long time user
My doctor recommended this product (I live in the desert) and I use it every day.

Love this sunscreen! A physical sunscreen without leaving skin white and oily. Great for my combination skin.
Posted 7/16/2015 by Kmoertl
This is a great daily spf. It is light and does not clog my pores. I use it when I do an outdoor work out and it doesn't sweat nor burn my eyes. I will buy this again.
The best sunscreen
Posted 7/15/2015 by Jenny
I am a big fan of this since it is a really light weight on my skin and protects my skin as well. I am really picky about sunscreen since I am really sensitive about the ingredients in the product and the texture of it. This exceeded my expectation. I just bought two more bottles and highly recommend it!
Good for acne skin
Posted 7/15/2015 by Crystal
I've been using this product for about half year, and my skin looks smoother cause UV will worsen the acne. Will keep using it!
Posted 7/7/2015 by Brooke
This is the only physical sunscreen that doesn't leave my face white. It totally disappears. Stings a little when I put it on, though. ( I have wicked sensitive skin.)
Posted 7/1/2015 by Js
Love the consistency. It came highly recommended and I love it. This is my second bottle of it. I have sensitive skin and have had no problems!

Don't want to be without it!

Great for sensitive skin
Posted 6/12/2015 by Lizgirl
I alternate this with the Elta daily because of my sensitive skin witch can be prone to whiteheads. I will be ordering my second bottle soon.
Posted 6/12/2015 by SPF
This is light weight, and works with every type of make up, No residue.
Highly Recommend ELTAMD UV Clear
Posted 6/7/2015 by dangirl
Goes on light, non greasy formula, feels refreshing. I have combo, acne, sensitive, discolored skin and this feels great on. My face doesn't feel like an oil slick and my make up goes on smooth. When I put it on my neck, it makes the skin there feel supple! Great product!
EltaMD UV Clear
Posted 6/7/2015 by Tiffany
I bought this product because of its high SPF protection and because I've been having trouble trying to find a good SPF for my combination, acne prone, AND sensitive skin. I have eczema and my everything seems to now upset my skin. I use this sunscreen and absolutely love the texture and the way it feels on my skin. It's cooling, absorbs quickly, and is non greasy. It doesn't feel sticky and my face doesn't feel slick after application. This is awesome and I just bought a second bottle. Highly recommend!
Great for everyday
Posted 5/29/2015 by Dawn
My derm recommended this product several years ago. I am a big fan of the brand. It's light weight and a great level of protection.

Great Moisurizer and sunscreen for sensitive skin

I use this for protection and as my face moisturizer over my other daily products. It does not burn my eyes at all and helps my face look fresh all day. Love this product!
Posted 5/9/2015 by Tammy
I bought this after reading the reviews and have to say I love it. It's very lightweight with just the right amount of moisture for the summer. I have sensitive, acne-prone skin and this has not caused any problems for me. I have since ordered another to give to my daughter.
sunscreen search over
Posted 5/5/2015 by dee
I have oily, dry, combination, acne prone, mild rosacea ,aging skin. I used to hate using sunscreen. This sunscreen improved my skin within one week of using. I want to wear this everyday no matter what. It is invisible and improves my appearance. I am no longer searching for a better sunscreen. Don't give it a second thought, buy it.
Good light product
Posted 5/2/2015 by agren
The product is very light and non-greasy. It didn't cause breakouts on my acne-prone skin.
Best Sunscreen Ever
Posted 5/2/2015 by Big D
This is the only sunscreen my dermatologist will let me us.
Posted 5/1/2015 by Peachy1
This product is meant for faces, but I have also used it on my arms, neck, chest, back of hands for daily general use (not when swimming, cycling, etc. as I want to use a more waterproof, sweat proof product then). It seems to provide good protection, is not greasy or too heavy and blends into skin well.
Love this Sunscreen!
Posted 4/22/2015 by tc
This is a great sunscreen. My teenage daughter and I use this everyday. This goes on clear and is easy to spread. I use this with and without makeup. My daughter has acne skin and this doesn't break her out. She has tried other brands and even other sunscreens within the Elta line, but she always comes back to this one. This sunscreen is definitely a staple in our house.
Great Every Day Sunscreen
Posted 4/14/2015 by Rosemary
I love this facial moisturizer & sunscreen. I have tried other brands but always come back to this one. It has zinc to block the sun (the best one according to my dermatologist) but it sinks in quickly unlike many other zinc based brands. I also love that it doesn't cause my acne prone skin to break out. Win - Win!
Effective Protection for my Ance Prone Skin
Posted 4/14/2015 by KatrinaM
I love this stuff! It was recommended to me by a dermatologist and I've been using it for over a year. I love that it is gentle and doesn't seem to irritate my acne prone skin, while delivering great coverage (no sunburns)!
Elta md sunscreen

Good, disappearing sunscreen
Posted 4/10/2015 by Brooke
I have VERY sensitive skin, and this sunscreen was recommended by my dermatologist. I like physical sunscreen because of my sensitive skin, and I've tried many. Most sting my face when I put it on, and eventually turn my face red. This one doesn't sting, and doesn't leave my face white, like many physical sunscreens do.
Posted 4/6/2015 by eocean
Great product- goes on clear, easy, non greasy once dried. Clears skin. I have sensitive skin and this works perfect!

If you are oily or acne prone, this is the best sunscreen for you. Is not oily and it feels like a "gel cream" not a thick lotion.

My husband and son both use this because of sensitive skin. When they sweat, it doesn't sting their eyes as well. It's more expensive but well worth it!
Posted 2/10/2015 by DesertMama
After my dermatologist recommended this sunscreen, I haven't stopped using it since. Absorbs well into my skin and doesn't leave a greasy feel. I use this daily as part of my skincare regime.
Posted 2/9/2015 by Kati
Nice and light, goes on easy. I have super sensitive skin and this does not irritate it at all. The price is also reasonable so I keep more than one bottle on hand.
Posted 2/1/2015 by Jill
I like this product but tends to make me look a little greasy.
Best sunscreen after trying many
Posted 1/27/2015 by Joy
It's not perfect but what sunscreen is-this is by far the best one I've ever used. It's not heavy or thick, it blends into the skin nicely. Having extremely sensitive skin, I can't wear this every day, I can only wear mineral spf daily. However when I need good coverage and know I'm going to be outside, this sunscreen is the only one my skin can handle. I use the other Elta MD products for my body, and this specific one for my face.

Because I have sensitive skin, I must use a physical sunblock. I have tried all that are available, but all the others make my face too white or too brown. This one is clear.
My husband and I use this on our faces daily. It's the best!

I like it. It's a good product.
Posted 12/4/2014 by Peachy1
I like this sunblock for daily use doing normal activities. It has effective properties and blends in nicely, does not make face feel greasy or white. For active sports, I use a more water-resistant product.
Great Sunscreen Moistuizer
Posted 12/2/2014 by Shopper
This is the best one I've found. It goes on evenly, and does a nice job moisturizing my aging skin. I've tried several moisturizers with SPF, and most of them pill or look flaky. It's not actually flakes, it is the moisturizer than does not rub into the skin. This Elta MD works good under makeup and can be used daily.
Fabulous Facial Sunscreen
Posted 12/1/2014 by Brenda
This product was recommended by my dermatologist because most facial sunscreens would cause me to breakout. I have sensitive skin but can use it daily. I spend a lot of time in Hawaii where the sun is very intense and this product is long-lasting and very effective.
Posted 11/20/2014 by Veronica
This product did not make me break out which is AWESOME. First few days there was a bit of burning sensation. The major issue I am having is making this product look good under my make up. It tends to pill.
I love this product.
Posted 11/4/2014 by Pauline
I would definitely recommend this item to my coworkers and friends.
Posted 10/25/2014 by Joanna
I have acne-prone, combination sunscreen. During spring and fall, I have sensitive skin due to seasonal allergy. Thanks to ELTA-Md for their super gentle, non-irritating formula, the sunscreen goes on smoothly. I like the vacuum pump design so the product stays fresh and clean. The amount dispensed can be controlled pretty well. The only con of this product is that it leave a white residue on face and produce gel when I try to apply make-up. I figured that's because my moisturizer or foundation does not go well with the sunscreen. The pro would be the moisturizing, non-irritating formula. I am acne prone, but I never had a break out when I was using this product. Recommended to a friend and she loves the product.
Tried & True for Sensitive Skin
Posted 9/15/2014 by Ashley
I have sensitive, mildly acne prone, dehydrated skin that runs a bit more oily in Summer. I am also high risk for melanoma, so broad spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF is a must. This is my "go to" facial SPF Summer after Summer. It has skin calming Niacin, and doesn't cause break outs. Also it goes on very sheer without leaving a white cast to the face. I just wished they made this in a larger, more cost effective size.
Posted 9/3/2014 by Amy
I have been using sun screen protection for 20 years and this product for almost 5 years. Now I am 50 years old, my skin is very clear and youthful. This product was recommended to me by a aesthetician. I have been extremely happy with it.
No Dryness, No Breakouts!
Posted 11/11/2013 by Anonymous
I have combination skin (oily on my cheeks but dry and sensitive on the T-Zone) and I am prone to breakouts. This moisturizer was recommended by my dermatologist and it has worked for me the last five years. This product provides good hydration without feeling heavy, and does not irritate my skin or lead to breakouts. I wish it would come in a bigger bottle.
Love it-Great for Sensitive Skin
Posted 6/1/2013 by Ellie
Absolutely love this sunscreen, highly recommended if you are serious about sun-care.The best thing is it oil free. it does takes the recommended time for it to set in, but it is worth it. I will definitely buy it again.
Excellent for acne-prone, sensitive skin!
Posted 3/28/2013 by Dani
For years, my esthetician implored me to use sunscreen daily and even though I knew she was right I never did because I'd never been able to find a sunscreen that didn't cause breakouts...until now! Elta MD UV Clear 46 is the ONLY one that actually helped repair my skin and has not caused a single breakout. I have dehydrated, breakout-prone, hyperigmented...lucky me. But, at least I have found a sun protection product that I never go a day without. Highly recommended!
Posted 2/6/2013 by Pearce
This product is great, so light and absorbs easily, little bit of moisturizer, not greasy. I have combination skin and I can easily layer this under my liquid foundations if I only wait a few minutes. Never had any rolling. I only wish it came in tinted versions like a BB cream.
Posted 6/25/2012 by moj
I like my new suncreen very much. It is the best for my oily skin. I have adult acne and can't use any other lotion. I recomend EltaMD UV Clear SPF 46 to everyone.
Posted 5/27/2012 by In Tahoe
I've been searching for a high SPF lotion that didn't leave my skin white or shiny and this lotion is wonderful. It disappears in my skin and my mineral makeup goes on perfectly. As I age, I'm super careful about sun exposure and I feel really confident using this product.
Posted 1/26/2011 by Monica
I love this sunscreen! My dermatologist highly recommended this one and sells it in her office. I have oily skin and use medication that can cause discoloration when I go in the sun. This sunscreen helps protect from that. I use it instead of moisturizer, it reduces my redness, is not greasy at all, does not sting, love it. LOVE IT! My husband gets eczema and has dry, sensitive skin and I have him use it too. It's great!
Posted 10/31/2010 by Anonymous
I have been searching for years for a sunscreen that won't upset my acne prone skin yet looks good under either liquid or mineral powder makeup. Goes on smoothly, provides great protection and doesn't ball up under makeup. No breakouts and I am on my 3rd bottle.
